sarah--if you have clean title to your minerals from your Dad and the minerals are undivided minerals and not with a piece of land with the minerals 100% with that piece of land I don't think Devon can cut you out. Talk again with your attorney he owes you detail explanation if can not I would go to another board cretified Oil & Gas attorney for another opinion. In mean while I would contact royalty owner relation department with Devon sending certified letter with copy of documents supporting your ownership of minerals (legal description plus copy of father will leaving minerals to you) in the unit. If necessary get the adminstrator of your father will to cut you a mineral deed for the minerals and record same in Shelby Count record office
Sarah, thanks for the feedback. I am happy to continue doing the update but just was trying to gauge if it was really being used. We do the same thing at work. I am sorry I can't do the same thing for Texas but it is too difficult to identify the Bossier (Haynesville) Shale wells.

He was a member of the Giants 1933 World Series team. He is a member of the Texas Baseball Hall of Fame, the Texas League Hall of Fame and the Shreveport-Bossier Sports Museum of Champions. He passed away in 1996 at the age of 93. He was a very humble and gentlemanly guy. And I was very proud of him.
